I love cinnamon rolls. Always have. Gooey. Sticky. Mmm…

But what do you do when you’re trying not to eat refined sugar and you’ve only got an hour and you want cinnamon rolls so bad!?

Simple. Cinnamon Muffins.

This is my revised version of the recipe I found online.

The dough:

½ c. raw milk

½ c. sour cream

1 teaspoon raw apple cider vinegar

½ c. raw sugar (I want to experiment with maple syrup but haven’t yet.)

1 tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp vanilla

1 egg

3 cups white whole wheat flour, plus more for dusting


Mix together and roll out.



2 T. melted butter

2/3 cup coconut sugar (or raw sugar, or sucanat)

Ground cinnamon (I use a lot. Just sprinkle it over until it smells good.)


Roll like regular cinnamon rolls but slice them thinner. I used cupcake papers to cut down on the mess. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.



¼ block of cream cheese

3 T maple syrup

Powdered sugar until desired thickness.

They are simply lovely. And very quick. Enjoy!


 A little piece of real food, to share with the family as you eat:

Oh, that we might know the Lord! Let us press on to know him!

 Then he will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn

 or the coming of rains in early spring.

Hosea 6:3 NLT
